Cano flew to Seattle Thursday night, prompting speculation that a deal could be reached soon. The Mariners were willing to offer a nine-year, $225 million deal, but were upset when Cano didn't accept immediately. One Mariner higher-up was so upset, that it could lead to the deal being pulled off the table. The Yankees still remained involved for Cano, but are said to be offering $175 million.
The deal is not completed yet, but it's thought to be a one-year deal in the range of $16 million. The 38-year-old has spent the past two seasons in New York, but has only signing one-year deals with the club. Kuroda posted a 3.31 ERA in 201 1/3 innings last year.
Arencibia will likely back up projected starter Geovany Soto, though the two could wind up competing for the spot during the spring. Arencibia hit .194/.227/.365 with 21 home runs and 55 RBI in 474 at-bats last season.
Williams spent the last three seasons with the Angels, going 19-18 with a 4.46 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, 6.0 K/9 rate and 2.7 BB/9 rate in 351 innings.
